Friday Fill-ins and Random Thoughts....



1. Going to New York City is high up on my bucket list.
2. My favorite quote is "Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you."; it's from Deuteronomy 31:6.
3. My ex-boyfriend inspired me to start blogging.
4. Strawberries are best with sugary juice and shortcake.
5. I was hiding and being chased in the last dream I remember having.
6. The most enjoyable time to go for a walk is twilight.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to just relaxing, tomorrow my plans include nothing and Sunday, I want to have lunch with my dad!


Just a few bullets:

**My oldest son is driving me crazy. He doesn't like me and I don't like him much either. His attitude stinks, and I am sick of his sense of entitlement. His tone and behavior make me not want to do anything nice for him ever again. College can't come too soon.

**I was going to write a nice "Father's Day" post about my dad, but I'm not feeling too well. I ran around all morning and now I just feel like taking a nap. Anyway, my dad is a good guy. Nuff said.

**3 of the 4 kids are going with their dad this weekend, and the remaining one wants nothing to do with me (because he hates me) so I am totally on my own. I contemplated driving to meet Steven, but he would have been 7 hours away (one way) and the gas cost would have been significant. We agreed to save the money for our anticipated road trip at the end of the month. But I really miss him and I sure could use a long hug (among other things!)

**I totally took THE HIGH ROAD by purchasing a coffee mug you can personalize, for the kids to give their dad for Father's Day. That's 15 bucks of MY MONEY, folks. Note: he did not do the same for me on Mother's Day. This makes me the mature one. And the only gloating I'm doing about it is on here. What a girl!

**Again, the people who use my credit union have no concept of personal space. Why in hell does some woman need to stand 6 inches from me? Back the heck up, please.

**I have found some insurance that allows me to add both the teenagers as secondary drivers to my car. Only $11 extra a month. Rachael has had her license for awhile, so she has taken the car alone a few times. Joseph just got his license this morning and tonight will taken the car for the first time. It was pretty scary for me the first few times Rachael did it, but I'm getting used to it.

**I took Aaron to see "Kung Fu Panda" last night, while Daniel and his buddies saw "Indiana Jones". "Kung Fu Panda" is really funny and totally worth it. Nothing to object to at all, and funny for parents and kids.

Have a great weekend everyone!

I am doing your #1 bucket list item today. :)

You just reminded me that I still haven't figured out what to do for my bio dad for Father's Day. Damn.

AmyD said...

I am totally behind on Father's Day shopping and my brother's birthday is tomorrow, thank goodness he is in Hawaii with my mom and my kids!

Kung Fu panda was AWESOME.

And, heh, (schizo comment, sorry) aren't teenagers fun? blech!

Jack said...

Get out!!! We put the same answer for #6.
Have a good weekend :)

Shen-Shen said...

Isn't KungFu Panda awesome?!?

Your oldest son doesn't seem too nice :( I did not have a very good relationship with my parents until around last year, and sometimes it's still a bit strained, but I think having good family ties is so important!

Have a good weekend :)

NYC is a fun place to go but take lots of cash. There is absolutely no better time of day to walk than twilight. Unfortunately, that's when the predators (coyotes and the occasional mountain lion) around here start looking for a careless deer or rabbit so I carry a 9 iron with me. It's fun to stop and take a few swings anyway.

NYC is my favorite city.

Poppy - Glad you stopped by. I know you had a great weekend!

AmyD - Teenagers are wonderful (rolling eyes)! Thanks for the visit.

Jack - Great minds think alike! Thanks for the drive-by!

Shen-shen - Kung Fu Panda WAS good! And Joseph has his good and bad moments. He just needs to get away for awhile!

T-dog - He has been driving on a permit since he was 15. He's a good driver. AND he's 18. And, as it turns out, he did just fine with the car.

JustDave - New York City is just one of those places I have always wanted to see someday.

Finn - I hope I get to see it. It's on the "bucket list"!

Sexy T-dude - Thanks for the funny and sweet comment. I love you!

Janet - You're welcome!
